West Virginia governor asks for public input on response to chemical spill

Reported by: Associated Press
Monday, May 5, 2014 3:29 PM EDT

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin is asking for public comment about how government agencies responded to a Jan. 9 chemical spill into 300,000 people's water supply.

The state is just starting the review of how various entities addressed the spill. West Virginians have until May 26 to fill out an online questionnaire with their thoughts and observations.

The review will cover actions by state agencies, county and local emergency management offices, volunteer and charity organizations, the West Virginia National Guard and other groups.

Overseeing the review will be: Adjutant General James Hoyer of the West Virginia National Guard; Homeland Security Director Jimmy Gianato; and Peter Markham, Tomblin's general counsel.

The Freedom Industries spill spurred a water-use ban for four to 10 days across nine counties.
